    Stamina and Good Health

    All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. In like manner, bosses who are consumed with work and never rest or take a vacation make their body susceptive to disease and create a rundown attitude. Our body requires one seventh of a week’s rest. Soviet Russia at one time thought a Sabbath’s day rest was just a religious ideal. They forced the populous to work seven day a week. About the sixth year of this work schedule, a large percentage of the workers were calling in sick and going to the company doctor. In conclusion, they reinstituted a day of rest after six days of labor. The workers’ health improved as well as did production.

    In our city life, we are tempted to go nonstop. The Lord provided us a day to rest. That means leave the iPhone in a drawer in the bedroom, limit the television, and refuse to deal with work related problems. We could check out church, or pleasantly visit nature, or exhaustedly lay limply on our foam mattress most of the day.

    Many of us work under stress or sit hours in front of a computer monitor. We could go a couple times a week to the gym or take a couple miles walk to exchange air in our blood stream and tone our muscles. Good health gives us long distance stamina to reach the company goal or our personal destiny.
